This is a case report of a patient with painful LBBB Syndrome that responded favorably to His Bundle Pacing. This syndrome is largely under recognized despite 50 reports in the literature over the last 60 years. Both diagnosis and treatment are not well defined and represent a major challenge in patients with this entity. Right ventricular pacing has been attempted with inconsistent efficacy outcomes. We report for the first-time complete resolution of chest pain with His bundle pacing. HBP provides a promising alternative pacing option that might provide symptom resolution to patients with a painful LBBB syndrome.
